For example - infrared is GRAS according to the FDA. (Generally Recognized as Safe.) Infrared alone can relax tight muscles, improve circulation, improve mobility in joints, relieve pain and the 5th claim that I don't recall at the moment. And, the red and infrared also directly inputs potential energy right into the acupuncture meridians and we can measure that too. See Fritz Popp's work - so it works on the meridians as well.
Also, the 660nm range is the same size as chlorophyll, which is almost identical to the hemoglobin in our red blood cells - just uses magnesium instead of iron.
And we can see the effects that red and infrared have on plant growth. There are some blue light benefits, but it is primarily the red and infrared that has the main benefit to my understanding. So, the chlorophyll is an antenna for red~infrared light.
hemoglobin, as any pigment, absorbs light at a specific wavelength. chemically, it looks very similar to clorophyll, it just has an iron atom in it's middle, instead of clorophyll's magnesium.
being red, one would guess it's light absorbtion spectrum would be a deep green - that would explain why we 'feel' so good in the forrest
also, the iris pigments absorb light at specific wavelengths, irises being kind of our own solar dishes ; also the hair's colour transforms harmfull UV into heat, and probably has some other effects too. that would explain why we have so many hair on our heads (next to our brains), and why yogis never cut their hairs (they say it's their antennae to knowledge).
many organo-metallic compounds absorb and emit light, the metallic atom acting as a kind of 'antennae'. that also makes sense from an alchemical point of view, as alchemists tried to 'capture the metallic luster' (gold being the preferred element in this quest).
Hide the TRUTH and it becomes your enemy.
Disclose it, and it becomes your weapon.
That is why oxygen meters that clip on to the finger for example (pulse oximeters) use red light.
There really is no such thing as reflected light - there is only absorbed and re-emitted light. Conventional science has this completely wrong.
But I agree about the hair - even Samson claimed to draw strength from the hair. It's a waveguide for the aether and our intuition is influenced by it. However, if we develop our mental abilities, we can access the collective all we want even with a shaved head. And, we can use light to augment these abilities as well.
Aaron, I've read somewhere that yellow may stimulate collagen. Is this something you came across?
My first 660nm red LED panel just arrived - IMG_0621.jpg
I'll work today on the pulse generator/driver circuit and post when ready.
Years ago, our company (Chee Energy) was featured in a lot of magazines and papers and even featured by Dr. Susan Lark. Several were all about how red light can reduce wrinkles on the face by stimulating the production of collagen.
Red and infrared is incredible for anything dealing with connective tissue related issues.
Years ago, an experiment was done with rabbits. Tendons were severed in the leg I think where they attached to the bones. They were then reattached and red light was used to treat the reattachment area. After it was healed, it was so strong where it was reattached that when testing how strong by sacrificing the rabbits and pulling the tendons from the bone, it actually ripped in the middle of the tendon and not at the connection point! Poor rabbits - that was done at some university but shows something very important for connective tissue.
I really haven't seen anything that red and infrared can't do with superior results compared to any other color therapy except for maybe blue, which has benefits for acne that red and infrared aren't as good at treating.
I studied Dinshah for a while, Let There Be Light, etc... and have rolls and rolls of every color filter imaginable. From what I've seen, red and infrared alone with the right frequencies makes all that multi color light therapy obsolete. Where I think the other colors shine is in psychological benefits for mood. Blue is calming, red is invigorating, pink (Eddie Baker Pink) like the bubble gum pink makes people docile and weak and is why some prisons paint the walls that color, etc...
Thanks Aaron . I'm having a brainstorm about what circuit or IC I should use for pulsing this LED panel. I suppose, the simpliest would be LM555. Just a bit of headache creating array of switchable capacitors which have the right values. It seems easier to make 7 separate oscillators and switch the one which is needed. For myself I would probably use only three frequencies from Nogier list but I want to make this universal so the others may benefit as well. Back to bench
I'm thinking of using N-FET as a switch.
My coax cable broke where it is connected to the connector that screws onto the jack on the generator so I have to get a new one or solder that back together, but otherwise it works perfect.
I only have the jacks setup for 2 lights. 1 is a red led panel from ebay or amazon and the other is a 924nm IR flood light for security systems. That IR one has a light sensor in the middle that keeps the unit off when there is daylight, so I removed the glass and simply put some black electrical tape over it so it turns on whenever I want it to come on. the 3rd light I want is a shorter wavelength IR around 880nm.
Ultimately what I want it to line the entire inside of my infrared sauna with red and infrared panels. I just wish I could find some flat panels in IR like the red and blue ones that are available all over the place. I'll take my ASEA redox signaling molecules, wait and then take my other stuff and then sit in the ir sauna and get the heat and the pulsed leds.
Just fyi... there are many photosensitive herbs you can take that increase the effectiveness of all light therapy. However, be careful if you're under a good amount of sun because they'll make you tan quicker. That includes st johns wort, various kinds of parsley, etc...
For example, there is a synthetic chemical branded as Photofrin. If that is taken, it has a tendency to accumulate in tumors and other cancerous areas. It was used in children with esophageal cancer. It accumulated in the cancer in the throat, red fiber optics are put down the throat, light triggers a chemical reaction with the Photofrin that causes the chemical to kill the cancer cell.
You can do the same with photosensitive herbs, they accumulate in various areas but do have an affinity for cancer cells. When hit with the red light, same goal in mind. En Light En was sold by Light Energy, one of the original pioneers in led healing devices.

Aaron, that's great info about photosensitive herbs and totally new field to me. I greatly appreciate that you shared this.
I just finished playing with capacitors in my pulsing circuit and it looks like success. I managed to find right resistors combination so the only variable necessary to switch is capacitance. There are other ways, including op amps and using regulated voltage instead but I want it to be fairly simple to replicate. LM 555 is very popular, cheap and most people are familiar with it. I'll let it run while having some late dinner and hopefully post schematics tomorrow. I had to combine parallel/serial caps in order to get right frequencies. All caps have some tolerance and there was 5-10% difference among the same value. It is basic astable oscillator built around 555 with seven switchable capacitors between pin2/6 and neg. rail - pin 1 (probably rotary switch will be good) driving N-channel MOSFET switching load (LED panel) on the high side.
I just bought 2 infrared panels of 140 LED's each. $16 plus $5 shipping each. Here is the eBay link - CCTV camera infrared LED PCB Panel board IR light, high power 850nm array module | eBay
They also have 224, 252, 350 and one left 560 LED. LED's have between 10 -30 deg.

If you can get the frequency to be square on with a 555 setup, that would be great.
That's an AWESOME deal on those IR panels on ebay. I didn't see those before when I bought my ir floodlight, which cost about $80.
That sellers shows they have a 560 IR LED panel but I couldn't find any avail. Do you know if they're just sold out? Their info says it is about $35 for that one.
